Mount Cotton Walk - (Sunday) This walk is approx. 7 km return and takes about two hours.  Lovely views from the top of the mountain.  Suitable as an introductory walk for prospective new members, or a training walk for members.  There will be an option to take the harder walk up Mongrel Hill.   We will leave from the Green Box at 7:00 am.  Plenty of parking on the opposite side of the road in a cleared gravel area in front of property no. 712-730 West Mount Cotton Rd, Sheldon.  Hiking poles are recommended as there are loose gravel spots.  (We have some spare poles available if you need to borrow one.)  After the walk we have coffee at the West Mount Cotton Nursery and Café.

Our annual Ratatat camp is on again - This is a wonderful walk from O'Reillys to the campsite via some of the Border Track and a lot of ups and downs along the main ridge along the escarpment. We camp in a treed hollow full of glow worms.
If you are interested, please email Tracy Ryan on theprestonhome@gmail.com. Spaces are very limited as it is a tiny campsite.
